place tomorrow. new york congressman peter king, who accused boehner of betraying the party, tells cnn he is glad the speaker is making things right. >> the bottom line is that we are now receiving what we asked for. as far as i'm concerned, what's done is done. i've always considered john boehner a friend. i said that on the house floor today, which made it all the more painful for me to say what i felt i had to say. i owed it to my constituents and i did feel that new york in a number of cases was being taken advantage of. >> you know, he says they have always been friends but they didn't sound too friend low yesterday morning. peter king has had a lot of emotion over this and we'll talk to the chairman later this morning in the 8:00 hour. >>> also new york congressman michael grimm whose district was devastated by sandy will join us. >>> new jersey governor chris christie may not be so quick to forgive speaker of the house john boehner at least when it comes to that sandy vote. christie gave boehner and the entire republican leadership an earful, vintage chris christie, for delaying
